Is testing your DNA really the answer?Jan 10, 2017
I get asked about genetic testing all the time as I do carry out some gene testing in my line of work, to aid my clinical diagnoses.
The key point to understand here is that many genes may contribute to a particular disease, some of which are yet unknown.
The other variables at play are nutrition and the environment that regulate gene expression. This has a significant bearing on whether a condition is expressed, and this is where my study and work lie.
Testing your DNA should be interpreted by someone who has a balanced view of this. The results also shouldn't go into the wrong hands.
